Arai’s Long-oval Signet-Q Designed to Fit More American Heads

New Elongated Shell And Interior Shape Designed To “Cure The Common Hot Spot Pain” 

Arai Signet-Q Helmet 

(Allentown, PA) Arai’s Signet-Q model is called “The American Helmet” because it was specifically designed for American heads and the American market. It’s the result of the latest rider research done by Arai in measuring hundreds of American heads. The research showed that a plurality of us have longer, narrower head shapes.
Are you a Signet head? One way to tell is if you get those sometimes painful red forehead marks—or “hot spots”—from helmets with rounder interior shapes. The Signet-Q’s interior fit, by contrast, is more elongated front to back, giving more room in the forehead area; the fit is also more narrow side to side.

Visually, the Arai Signet-Q is almost identical to its stable mate, the RX-Q, except for their interior shapes, the RX-Q having a somewhat rounder Intermediate Oval shape. Creating a model whose major feature is its interior shape comes from Arai’s long-held credo that head shape is as important as head size in getting the “perfect” fit. Arai says this is why it’s the only helmet company that “goes to the added effort and expense of creating models with different interior shapes.”

However, Arai advises that, regardless of what head shape you “think” you have, they encourage everyone to take the opportunity to test-fit both the RX-Q and Signet-Q models side-by-side to make sure you get the best fit possible – because only you can decide which fits you best.
